Retired civil servant, Buddhist, and author of The Sheriff of Wanchai, Peter Mann recalls how fear gripped the "plague city". Mike Rowse, instigator of InvestHK, takes up the story with his account of the controversial Harbour Fest, and how he sued the Chief Executive at enormous cost to clear him name of multiple accusations. Swire Pacific Chairman John Slosar describes the difficulties of running an airline with virtually no passengers, and The Peninsula Hotels' Chief Operating Officer Peter Borer relives the nightmare of SARS when he wondered if his lobby would ever fill up with guests again.
Next week: Article 23 - coming back soon.
